All hail Odin!

Saturday, January 19

West Elk trails mascot and greeter, Odin earned his kibble today. He broke trail around Eric’s Loop, adding trail breaker to his resumé. Tod Tibbetts followed him and they opened up 2 feet of powder so that Tod could run the Arctic Cat around to open it up. He only got stuck once!

Good dog Odin!

Six to 8 inches of new snow fell overnight on top of what Aaron machine packed on Friday. Temps were in the high 20s at the trailhead. Tod machine packed the trails with the Arctic Cat in preparation for the next snow event coming on Monday.
